Grand Seiko SBGJ217 Exterior
Grand Seiko is known for using good quality when it comes to the materials used in making their watches. This simple principle to ensure quality is not deviated from in the Grand Seiko SBGJ217. Its casing is made from stainless steel, and it is measured at 39.5mm in diameter, 13.9mm in thickness and 90.0g in total weight. The band of the watch which is measured at 192mm in the perimeter is made from crocodile leather (Brown colored) and attached to it is a three-fold clasp with push release button to help unstrap or strap it on.
Furthermore, Grand Seiko employs the use of box-shaped sapphire as the material to make the glass covering of the casing. This glass is coated on its inner surface with anti-reflective chemicals to protect it.
Grand Seiko SBGJ217 Movement
The Grand Seiko SBGJ217 is equipped with an automatic with manual capacity moment type 9S86 caliber system. This 37 jewels system was designed with an accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds a day when static or +8 to -1 seconds per day when used normally, and 55 hours power reserve capacity.

Grand Seiko SBGJ217 Functions
Aside from its obviously beautiful design, one of the things that make the Grand Seiko SBGJ217 stand out is the added functionality which gives it more value beyond being a fashion item.
One of such functionalities is its 24 hours – dual time display. As mentioned earlier, the SBGJ217 is a GMT watch. What this means is that there are two different hands for the hour reading. One of these hands is meant to be used for local timekeeping, and the other hand is useful to the international traveler who may need to keep track of both their local time and the time of the new time zone they are in. The SBGJ217 is designed in such a way that the accuracy of both times is very high making this function one of high importance.
Another added function in this watch is its magnetic resistance capability. The internal working mechanism of most watches are made of the little metallic component. This means that if brought near a magnet, these components will naturally be acted upon by the force of the magnet. However, the Grand Seiko SBGJ217 is not one of those watches. Its magnetic resistance ensures that it keeps working accurately even if used near a magnetic field.
Other functions of the SBGJ217 of notable mention are its splash resistance to water or liquid, it stop second-hand function, its calendar linked time difference adjustment function and its 55 hours power reserve capability.
Grand Seiko SBGJ217 Display
The Grand Seiko SBGJ217 display is laid on the foundation of its beautiful silver-colored dial and its round 24 hours bezel. No Arabic numerals are present on the dial, but the hand-polished stainless-steel indexes replacement blends with the dial to give a beautiful look. The hour, minute and seconds hand are made from hand-polished stainless steel, while the GMT hour hand is blue in color to differentiate it from the other hour hand. As usual, the signature GS initial of the Japanese company is just below the 12:00 mark while a date window sits at the 3:00 mark.
Finally, another nice display characteristic of the Grand Seiko SBGJ217 is that on its back case. The back case has a see-through design that displays the 9S86 caliber automatic movement system to the view of its bearer.
